By all accounts, DPS makes some of the best big mountain skis in the world. So when they tell you that the new, women-specific, Zelda 106 is perhaps the most versatile of the bunch, it's worth hearing them out. It floats better in untracked snow than the skinnier Nina 99, and is quicker edge-to-edge on variable surfaces than the wider Yvette 112. The Zelda has the same PaddleTech shape that makes those skis so smooth and precise (featuring a tapered sidecut blended with the perfect amount of rockerity) and shares their sturdy backbone for when the snow takes a turn for the firm. Navigating bumps and tight trees at the speed of thought, then effortlessly surfing in powder, the Zelda 106 is a do-everything companion for skiers who, well, do everything.
DPS is famous for innovation in pursuit of uncompromising performance, and their Pure3 construction blends aerospace carbon and nanotechnology to build some of the most advanced skis in the world. This exclusive design produces planks that are 30% lighter, but also more powerful, more durable, and torsionally stiffer. Precision engineering combined with premium materials, DPS's Pure3 construction remains unmatched on the mountain.
